Just got back from muddy Wilbur Cross, where Hamden moved to 9-1 with a 10-6 victory. Darien also defeated St. Joseph 21-14 (thanks to our buddy David Liberatore for that score).
By the end of this evening, we’ll be able to give you all the playoff scenarios.
Looking back on last night’s games, they were pretty wild, especially in the SCC. But everything went according to form. Kennedy is your NVL championship participant against Ansonia, which defeated Kennedy 36-12 in the regular season.
(WHY, NVL? Why do you insist on playing 11 league games this year, denying teams like Ansonia and Seymour scheduling out of league just so everybody plays everybody, and then insist on playing a championship? You can’t have it both ways.)
Newtown survived (barely) 24-17 over Bethel to punch its ticket to the SWC title game.
Masuk survived a Pomperaug comeback bid, 35-21
Cheshire honed in on a Class LL berth by crushing Fairfield Prep, 38-6
Also: Chris Sloat went nuts, passing for 512 yards and six TDs in Bunnell’s wild, wild win over Barlow. Branford outlasted Foran and Amity outlasted Notre Dame-WH in a pair of crazy games. Read all of that (and more! here)
